The burning and tightness along the muscle between my shoulder and neck was the most constant pain
, and every time it flared up, the pain
in my shoulder and surrounding areas got worse. My neck
also started to pop and crack rather severely, several times a day. My neck never used to pop much at all, maybe once every 6 months or so, and now it was doing it all the time, and it was loud, jarring cracks and felt like it was just being ground up.
